Washington offers $10 million reward for reporting on "hackers"

The US State Department announced Thursday a reward of up to $10 million for information that helps identify anyone who engages in cyber activities against the United States, Sky News reported.

The US State Department had said about a week ago that investigations are still underway regarding the recent cyber attacks that targeted a number of US institutions, including government agencies.

"Ransom attacks are not new," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki added at the time. "What is new is the high-level engagement they're seeing from our government security officials, the Russian government and cyber-attack experts."

"The president reserves the right to respond to any ransom networks and those that harbor them. That remains his policy."
